Section i. The Society shall consist of active, corresponding, and 
honorary members. Only active members shall be entitled to vote in 
any meeting of the Society. 

Corresponding and honorary members shall be persons residing out 
of the State of Connecticut, and shall not be subject to any admission 
fee or dues. 

Honorary members shall be persons who may have rendered important 
public service to the State of Connecticut, or to the cause of historic 
inquiry, or literature generally. 

SECTION 2. Every application for active membership shall be in 
writing, signed by the applicant, shall be supported by the written 
recommendation of at least one active member residing in the State of 
Connecticut, and shall be accompanied by the admission fee of three 
dollars. Such applications must be made upon blank forms fur- 
nished by the Society and shall contain a brief personal sketch of the 
applicant. 

Ever}' nomination for the election of corresponding or honorary

active members, residing in. the State of Connecticut, stating the reason 
for such nomination, and the qualifications of the persons proposed for 
membership. 

Section 3. No person shall be voted for as an active, corresponding, 
or honorary member until at least the meeting next succeeding the one 
at which his election is recommended by the Committee on Membership . 

Whenever a vote shall be taken on the admission of a member and 
there shall be found two ballots against his admission, the presiding 
officer shall declare the election postponed. At the next regular meet- 
ing, if the recommendation of the Committee on Membership shall be 
renewed, he may be admitted by the votes of two-thirds of the members 
present. 

Section 4. Active members shall pay as annual dues to the Society 
three dollars if they reside within the city of Hartford, and two dollars 
if they reside without said city. Any active member, not indebted to 
the Society for dues, may constitute himself a life member by paying at 
one time the sum of fifty dollars. 

The annual dues of members shall be payable in advance on the first 
day of May in each year. The payment of the annual dues shall con- 
stitute a condition of membership, and the neglect or refusal to pay the 
same for the period of six mouths after they become due shall be deemed 
a withdrawal from the Society. 



ARTICLE II. OFFICERS.

present's Ctfcfcress. 



WE bring to a close to-day another year of the work of our 
Society, the first complete year of our occupation of 
the newly provided rooms in this building, so long our home. 
The Librarian will tell you presently of the details of the im- 
portant work under his care, to which lie devotes each year 
so much intelligent and wisely directed thought and labor; 
and he will continue his record of the gifts to our collections 
and his report of the constant use of those collections by 
members and others. The Treasurer's report, of which I shall 
presently give an outline, will show how much we are doing 
with the income now available, and will suggest how greatly 
we are in need of provision for the increase of that income. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

In the year just passed we have elected thirty-four active 
members, and the name of one judge of the superior court 
has been added to the list of ex-officio members. The newly 
elected Governor of the State has been an active member for 
the past' twelve years, has throughout that time taken an 
active interest in the welfare of the Society, and has frequently 
read at our meetings papers of great value. Nine active 
members (one of them a member for life) have died; two have 
resigned, and the names of two have been dropped from the 
roll. We have at present one honorary member, nine cor- 
responding members, nineteen ex-officio members (two of whom 
are also on the list of active members), and three hundred and 
ninety-nine active members, of whom forty are members for 
life. I repeat my conviction that we ought to have at least 
five hundred members (that is to say, a hundred and forty 
mqre than we have) regularly paying their annual dues. 

OBITUARY. 

We have been called to record this year, as already noted, 
the death of nine active members: 

Horace Smith Fuller, M. D., of Hartford, elected a 
member in 1SS6, well known in the community as a skilful 
physician, an enthusiastic and judicious collector of antiquities, 



and a generous donor to the Athenaeum from his store of 
ceramics, died 30 December 19 10. 

Julius Deming Perkins, of Litchfield, sometime State Sena- 
tor, who was admitted a life-member in 1890, died 19 March 191 1 . 

Mrs. Martha Whiting Burton, of Hartford, who became 
a member in 1893, died 25 March 191 1. 

Miles Barker Preston, sometime Mayor of Hartford, 
whose membership dated from 1899, died 10 May 191 1. 

General Arthur L. Goodrich, of Hartford, sometime 
of the Governor's staff, treasurer of the Courant Company, 
a member of the Society since 1905, died 16 April 191 1. 

James Monroe Paine, of Danielson, elected a member in 
1905, died September 19 10. 

William O. Seymour, of Ridgefteld, admitted to member- 
ship also in 1905, died 24 January 191 1. 

John Hyde Peck, of West Hartford, honored as a teacher, 
who became a member in 1906, died 11 May 191 1. 

Mrs. Emoret Scott Risley, of Rockville, a member since 
1907, died 3 April 191 1. 

meetings. 

At the eight monthly meetings, papers have been provided 
for the members and others present as follows: 

In October, by Mr. Francis H. Parker, on Lydia Buckland, 
a Colonial Dame of the seventeenth century. 

In November, by Mr. Forrest Morgan, on Jonathan Trum- 
bull, the Evolution of an Administrator. 

In December, by myself, the occasion being the occurrence 
of the 275th anniversary of the settlement of Hartford, on 
Glimpses of the History of Hartford in its first quarter 
century. 

In January, by Miss Mary K. Talcott, on Early Attempts 
to Christianize the Indians in Connecticut. 

In February, by the Rev. Dr. Edwin P. Parker, on the 
Separate Congregationalists of Connecticut in the eighteenth 
century. 

In March, by Mr. F. Clarence Bissell, on the March of 
Rifle Battalions across Connecticut in August 1775. 

In April, by Professor Charles M. Andrews, of Yale Uni- 
versity, on the English Board of Trade and its Papers. 

In May, by President Flavel S. Euther, on Dorr's Rebellion. 



The attendance at the public meetings, to hear the prepared 
papers and the discussion upon them, has been somewhat 
increased as attention has been called to them by a bulletin 
posted in the hall below, where it can be seen by all who enter 
the building. It is to be hoped that still more, who would 
certainly be interested in the matters presented from time to 
time, will know of and appreciate the opportunities which are 
thus offered. 

FINANCIAL. 

The Treasurer's report w 7 ill show that our income this past 
year for dues and dividends has been $1,223, while the 
ordinary expenses, including an annual charge of $244 for in- 
surance, have amounted to about $1,850; and the cost of 
furniture for the new reading-room makes the whole amount 
expended for necessary purposes about $2,100. To meet the 
deficit in ordinary income, S244 — $50 more than last year — 
has been received from members in reply to a special appeal, 
now made for the third time; and our first Vice-President, 
James J. Goodwin, Esq., has again made a liberal donation of 
$500, for which our most sincere thanks are due. A balance 
of about $50 overdrawn must be carried to the new year. 

I take this opportunity of expressing the hope that all of 
our members who feel that they can afford to add to their 
annual dues a special subscription, so that their whole pay- 
ment will be $10 or $5, or at least a dollar more than the 
required amount, will do so for the benefit of themselves and 
of the Society and of the community for whose benefit it exists 
and works. 

The standing committee, acting on a suggestion made by the 
Treasurer, has taken order for a separation of the principal 
and interest accounts of the Publication Fund. And I desire 
to call attention to the distinct statements in the Treasurer's 
report of the foundation and present condition of each of the 
funds of the Society. 

The annual grant to the Society made by the General 
Assembly of the State is for purposes of publication and 
appears in the income of the Publication Fund. It is of 
advantage to the Society in furthering an important part of 
our work; but it is of greater advantage to the State by 



putting into public libraries and thus at the disposal of many 
readers a large amount of valuable and interesting material. 

PUBLICATIONS, ETC. 

The thirteenth volume of the Society's Collections has been 
published in the past year. It is the second volume of the 
Governor Law papers, covering the sixteen months from 
August 1745 to December 1746, edited by our Secretary with 
his wonted accuracy. 

At the meeting in October, Mrs. Gurclon \V. Russell, whose 
late husband was for a- long time our senior member, presented 
to the Society 150 copies of a handsome volume on which he 
had bestowed much labor, "Descendants of John Russell, 
Cambridge, 1635," to be sold as occasion should offer, and 
the income applied for the purchase of genealogical and his- 
torical books to be credited to the Dr. G. W. Russell Book 
Fund. 

In the year 1905, Mr. W. H. C. Pynchon deposited with" 
the Society under a special agreement a collection of the works 
of the Worshipful William Pynchon of Agawam, which had 
been the property of the late President Pynchon of Trinity 
College. Mr. Pynchon and his wife having both died recently, 
an agreement of the same tenor as the former has been made, 
by authority of the Society, with the representatives of their 
heirs, so that this valuable collection remains in our custody. 

The work of historical societies, as I have remarked in 
former years, is constantly proving itself of greater value to 
the community and as constantly attracting the attention of 
intelligent men and women. We owe it to ourselves and to 
all whom we can serve that we increase the value of our service 
year by year. 

Samuel Hart, Presided. 



IS 



itbrartan's Keport 



Mr. President and Me niters of the Society: 

After a year's occupation of our new rooms, it is gratifying 
to say that they are found for the most part by our readers to 
be very pleasant in their location and facilities for consulting 
the classes of books that are most used. The quiet of the old 
rooms is wanting in the new, and in the summer time they are 
found to be very warm. We are still embarrassed by lack of 
room for our library; for, except in the matter of a fine news- 
paper room, we have gained nothing in shelf space by the 
change to the present rooms. Practically all of our fine series 
of United States Congressional Documents and departmental 
reports, comprising several thousand volumes, are piled in the 
basement and cannot be consulted. A large room in the Annex 
building has been filled with temporary shelving and is stored 
full with books and pamphlets. These, for the most part, 
cannot be gotten at for consultation, although some of them 
are not infrequently desired. Such a situation is very dis- 
couraging, not only to your librarian, but to all members of 
the Society who realize it. 

Volume thirteen of our series of "Collections, " comprising 
the second volume of the Governor Jonathan Law correspond- 
ence, August 1745 to December 1746, was received from the 
press and issued in March. It forms a book of above 400 pages 
octavo. Most of the work of making the copy for this volume, 
and all of the proof reading and indexing has been done by 
your librarian, acting on behalf of the publication committee 
as editor. Included in this volume is a list of more than 450 
Connecticut soldiers who were in service at Louisburg either 
at the time of or soon after its surrender to the English in 1745. 
This list has never before been published, and it should prove 
of much interest to many who are seeking the military service 
of their colonial ancestors. Copies of the book have been sent 
to all of our regular exchanging societies and to those who have 
contributed (including their annual dues) ten dollars or more 



towards the current expenses of the Society; and three hundred 
have been forwarded to the State for distribution. Copy is 
already prepared, with the exception of a few documents, for 
the third and final volume of the Law papers. 

The "annual report," a pamphlet of 39 pages containing 
the usual information of the work of the Society, was issued 
in June. 

Two friends of the Society, Mrs. Frank P. Moulton and Mrs. 
George Kingsbury, have arranged and mounted in sixteen scrap 
books the genealogical data from the Boston Transcript. With 
three volumes previously arranged by Miss Gay, we now have 
this data in convenient form for reference from November 1894 
to November 1909. The same ladies have also mounted in 
scrap books the genealogical data from the Hartford Times, 
the clippings for which have been given us by Miss Mary 
Griswold. This work had also been commenced by Miss Gay, 
and three volumes are now filled. 

A list has been completed during the year, somewhat similar 
to the compilation made some years since upon the Probate 
Districts, of the Congregational Ecclesiastical Societies formed 
in the state previous to the adoption of the constitution in 
1 8 18. It is intended to show in this list the date of the form- 
ation of each society and the town or towns in which it was 
located, the changes in its (nominal) location caused by the 
division of towns with the date of such changes, and the 
different names both official and popular which have been 
applied from time to time to each society. To accomplish 
this in a manner absolutely complete and perfect is probably 
impossible; and the best that your librarian dares hope is that 
few if any serious errors or omissions have been made in the 
list. It has been found very useful in the w r ork of the library, 
and probably this usefulness would be increased if the list were 
put into type. 

The list of family genealogies on our shelves printed not 
quite ten years ago has now become very much out of date, 
through the addition since that time of five hundred genealo- 
gies. It would be a great convenience if a new list brought 
up to date could be printed. * 



* The standing Committee has ordered the printing of this list, ami a copy will be 
mailed to any member requesting it. 



The number of gifts to the library is about one hundred 
greater than last year, being, exclusive of manuscripts, 608 
volumes, 392 pamphlets and 27 miscellaneous. The purchases, 
including nine volumes credited to the Lucy A. Brainard Book 
Fund, two to the William F. J. Boardman Fund and one to 
the Charles J. Hoadly Fund, are 67 volumes, 189 pamphlets 
and two miscellaneous. One volume has been acquired by 
exchange. This makes a total of 676 volumes, 581 pamphlets, 
and 29 miscellaneous; or a grand total of 1,286 items. 

The number of readers during the year has been 3,460, 
an increase over the number last year of twenty-three per 
cent. 

The genealogies added during the year are forty-four in 
number, comprising the following families: x\lden, Barber, 
Barbour, Barnes, Bennett, Booth, Browning, Cady, Church, 
Clark, Dutcher, Eastman, Fenner, Frost, Fuller, Greene, 
Guy, Hall, Henry, Higginson, Hoar, Jones, Loomis, Mott, 
Mower, Mowry, Parker, Risley, Rowlee, Russell, Sackett, 
Scoville, Shumway, Starkey, Stephens, Stokes, Stratton, 
Treman, Usher, Wait, Warde, White, Williams, Woods. 

The following nine volumes of Massachusetts Vital Records 
have been purchased with the income from the Lucy A. 
Brainard Book Fund: Chester, Foxborough, Hanson, Ipswich 
(2 vols.), Newbury (2 vols.), Newburyport, Pembroke. 

With the income from the William F. J. Boardman Fund 
the Ward Genealogy and W ells' History of Hatfield have been 
purchased; and with the income from the Charles J. Hoadly 
Fund the Fuller Genealogy. 

The purchase of a copy of the laws passed by the Connecticut 
Legislature at the session of May, 180S, supplies the only lack 
in our collection of the official issues of Connecticut statutes 
and session laws since the close of the Revolution. 

The following manuscripts have been received from the 
donors named: 

Lucius B. Barbour, Hartford. 

Record book of the Baptist church in Ashford, 17S0-1875.

From our Vice-President, James J. Goodwin, we have 
received the Index library volumes 3S, 39, 40, and parts of 
twelve other volumes. The completed volumes comprise 
Leicester marriage licences 1 570-1 729, Worcester wills 1601- 
1652, Gloucester inquisitiones post mortem . 1302-1358. Also 
the Victoria History of Nottingham, volume 2, Marriage 
licences of Bath and Wells, and the current volume of the 
Genealogist. From our Vice-President, Carl Stoeckel, and his 
wife the Records of the church in Norfolk during the pastorate 
of Rev. Ammi Ruhamah Robbins, 1 761-18 13. The Stokes 
Records, the first volume of which in two parts has been pre- 
sented by the author, Anson Phelps Stokes, is worthy of 
especial notice for its elaborateness and beauty. William R. 
Goodspeed, the publisher, has presented the fifth and filial 
volume of his very useful series, Men of Mark in Connecticut. 
The Lewis Historical Publishing Company of New York has 
presented two of its genealogical works, each of four quarto 
volumes, Genealogical and family history of the state of Maine 
and Genealogical and personal memoirs of families of Boston 
and eastern Massachusetts. From Dr. Franklin B. Dexter we 
have received Flagg's Guide to Massachusetts local history, 
and from the Library of Congress a list of American and Eng- 
lish genealogies in that library. From Jones Brothers, the 
publishers, we have received vol. 12, completing their issue of 
Ridpath's History of the United States; from James N. Arnold 



Vital record of Rhode Island vol. 19.; from Sarah N. Pardee of 
Hartford a large number of miscellaneous books and pamphlets; 
from Mary K. Talcott Essex marriages vol. 1 and Hertford- 
shire marriages vols. 1, 2, with the expressed hope that these 
might act as an incentive to other members to add further pub- 
lications of English records which have American interest. 
* The diary of James K. Polk in four volumes has been 
presented by the Chicago Historical Society, and papers of 
President Millard Filmore in two volumes by the Buffalo 
Historical Society. 

At the October meeting a letter was read from Mrs. Gurdon W. 
Russell presenting to the Society one hundred fifty, copies of the 
" Descendants of John Russell, Cambridge, 1635," which had 
been in part compiled by Dr. Russell and completed after his 
death by E. Stanley Welles. The proceeds from the sale of 
these books to constitute "The Dr. Gurdon W. Russell Book 
Fund," the income of which is to be used for the purchase of 
historical and genealogical works for the library. 

The annual gift of directories received this year from the 
Messrs Geer of the Hartford Printing Company consisted of 
154 volumes, comprising 137,500 pages. A count shows that 
we now have in our collection 279 different series of directories. 
The great majority of these are of different cities, including 
such distant places as the Philippine Islands and Sydney, 
N. S. W. In a few instances there are more than one series 
of the same city, such as a personal and a business directory 
of Philadelphia; and a few directories of different trades or 
professions are included in the list. Some of the series contain 
30 to 40 different years (New Britain and Middletown), one 
contains 75 (Hartford), and one extends back, with many 
omissions, for more than a century (New York). 

Through the kind suggestions of Mrs. Jane T. Smith we 
have received from Mrs. Lucy Howe Bowdoin of Salem, Mass., 
the portrait of her mother's own cousin, Lucy Ruggles Howe. 
Miss Howe was the daughter of Lewis Howe of Hard wick, 
Mass., and step-daughter of Hon. John M. Niles of Hart- 
ford. She died in Hartford, where she had lived for some 
years, March 4, 1835, at the age of twenty-one. The por- 
trait was painted the year of her death by Philip Hewins of 
Hartford. 



Clarence E. Bissell of Boston, Mass., has presented the 
pastel portrait, previously deposited with us, of Rev. George 
Colton of Bolton, Conn., the well known and somewhat eccen- 
tric pastor of the church in that town, which, at the time of 
his death in 1812, he had served for almost half a century. 

Five additions have been made to our unrivaled collection of 
eighteenth century Connecticut imprints, one each of the years 
I768(?), 1779, 1788, 1797, 1798; also several numbers of the 
Connecticut Courant, 1777-1786, that were previously missing 
from our file. 

And now we enter upon another year, the eighty-sixth since 
the first formation of the Society, with hopes for its continued 
prosperity and usefulness. 

. Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

ARTICLE I. MEMBERS. 

Section i. The Society shall consist of active, corresponding, and 
honorary members. Only active members shall be entitled to vote in 
any meeting of the Society. 

Corresponding and honorary members shall be persons residing out 
of the State of Connecticut, and shall not be subject to any admission 
fee or dues. 

Honorary members shall be persons who may have rendered important 
public service to the State of Connecticut, or to the cause of historic 
inquiry, or literature generally. 

Section 2. Every application for active membership shall be in 
writing, signed by the applicant, shall be supported by the written 
recommendation of at least one active member residing in the State of 
Connecticut, and shall be accompanied by the admission fee of three 
dollars. Such applications must be made upon blank forms furnished 
by the Society and shall contain a brief personal sketch of the applicant. 

Every nomination for the election of corresponding or honorary 
members shall be based upon the application, in writing, of at least two 
active members, residing in the State of Connecticut, stating the reason 
for such nomination, and the qualifications of the persons proposed for 
membership. 

Section 3. No person shall be voted for as an active, corresponding, 
or honorary member until at least the meeting next succeeding the one 
at which his election is recommended by the Committee on Membership. 

Whenever a vote shall be taken on the admission of a member and 
there shall be found two ballots against his admission, the presiding 
officer shall declare the election postponed. At the next regular meet- 
ing, if the recommendation of the Committee on Membership shall be 
renewed, he may be admitted by the votes of two-thirds of the members 
present. 

Section 4. Active members shall pay as annual dues to the Society 
three dollars if they reside within the city of Hartford, and two dollars 
if they reside without said city. Any active member, not indebted to 
the Society for dues, may constitute himself a life member by paying at 
one time the sum of fifty dollars. 

The annual dues of members shall be payable in advance on the first 
day of May in each year. The payment of the annual dues shall con- 
stitute a condition of membership, and the neglect or refusal to pay the 
same for the period of six months after they become due shall be deemed 
a withdrawal from the Societv. 



ARTICLE IT. OFFICERS. 

Section i. The officers of the Society, to be elected at the annual 
meeting by ballot, and to hold their offices for one year and until others 
shall be chosen, shall be, a President, not exceeding eight Vice-Presi- 
dents, a Recording Secretary, a Corresponding Secretary, a Treasurer, 
an Auditor, a Committee on Membership to consist of seven members,

F^OR the twelfth time, it is my privilege, and an honor which 
I highly esteem, to report to 3-011 in outline the work of 
the year, and to ask your attention to the detailed reports of 
the Librarian and the Treasurer. Certain gifts mentioned in 
the former are worthy of special note here: the collection of 
papers relating to the Mohegan Controversy presented by the 
Johnson family of Stratford, to whom they came from their 
ancestor, Dr. William Samuel Johnson, agent for the Colony 
in the matter: a letter which is the oldest document relating to 
Connecticut known to be now in the State, a generous gift 
from the Librarian himself; the large remainder of the Morris 
Register, to the preparation and publication of which our late 
Treasurer gave much labor and interest, presented by his 
daughters; and a large number of copies of Mr. James 
Shepard's History of St. Mark's Church in New Britain and 
of the separate publication of its introduction under the title of 
The Episcopal Church, an unreserved gift from the author. 

I make mention here also of the deposit with the Society of 
a fine portrait of the late Rev. Dr. Thomas Ruggles Pynchon, 
sometime President of Trinity College, with an excellent copy 
of a portrait of his distinguished ancestor, the Worshipful 
Major William Pynchon of Agawam. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

In the past year seven active members have been added to 
the roll by election; nine active members have died, two of 
them being life members; two active members have resigned, 
and four have been dropped in consequence of non-payment of 
dues. Our complete roll now shows one honorary member, 
nine corresponding members, nineteen ex-officio members (two 
of whom are also on the list of active members), and three 
hundred and ninety-one active members, of whom thirty-nine 
are members for life. I still hope that we may soon have at 



10 

least five hundred members paying annual dues; and I urge 
upon those who hear or read this report that they seek eligible 
men and persuade them to make application for membership. 

OBITUARY. 

The names of members who have deceased during the past 
year are as follows: 

Miss Ellen D. Earned, of Thompson, admitted to mem- 
bership in 1870, and a Vice-President of the Society since 1889, 
died 31 January 191 2. A tribute of sincere respect is due to 
one who in a quiet but very efficient way rendered great 
service to more than one generation, and that not only by 
collecting and imparting knowledge of the times that are past, 
but also by the brightness and readiness with which she wrote 
of the present. It was no little thing to have been the his- 
torian of Windham County; it was even more to have made 
herself the friend of all who read what she wrote from her 
careful observation and well-stored memory. 

John Emery Morris, of Hartford, a life member by 
election in 18S9 and from 1899 to 191 1 Treasurer of the 
Society, carefully watching its interests and advancing them in 
many ways, whose services deserved to be recognized with 
thankfulness, died 30 May 191 1. 

Joseph L. Blanchard, of Hartford, elected in 1892, died 
31 May 191 1. 

Alfred Woods Converse, of Windsor Locks, elected in 
1893, died 16 January 19 12. 

Nathaniel Warham Hayden, a prominent citizen of 
Windsor, a member since 1893, died 30 January 19 12. 

Miss Emma Louise Tracy, of Branford, a student of 
genealogies, elected to membership in 1895, died 15 April 191 2. 

Jonathan Brace Bunce, of Hartford, President of the 
Society for Savings and also President of the Retreat for the 
Insane, active in the public interests of the city, a member of 
this Society since 1896, died 2 March 1912. 

Mrs. Eliza Scott Calhoun, wife of Judge David S. 
Calhoun, of Hartford, elected a member in 1896, died 18 
September 191 1. 

Mrs. Ellen Hall Tuller, elected a life member in 1903, 
died 4 June 1911. 



MEETINGS. 

At the eight monthly meetings of the past year, papers 
have been presented, as follows: 

In October, by Mr. George M. Curtis, of Meriden, on " Early 
Silver of Connecticut and its Smiths," illustrated by character- 
istic and beautiful examples. 

In November, by Rev. William A. Beardsley, of New Haven, 
on "An Old New Haven Engraver and his Work" — being 
Amos Doolittle, of whose work we have some fine specimens. 

In December, by Mr. Clement Scott, of Hartford, on "John 
Jay, the Conservative Patriot." 

In January, by Lewis E. Stanton, Esq., on "W 7 it and 
Eloquence of Lawyers," being an enlargement of a paper 
previously read to the Society. 

In February, by Edwin A. Down, M. D., of Hartford, on 
"The History of Man's Intellectual Growth." 

In March, by Mr. Charles S. Ensign, of Newton, Mass., on 
"Ancient Materia Medica." 

In April, by our Librarian, on "Thomas Green, Hartford's 
First Printer," a very thorough and interesting study of the 
man and of his work, illustrated by many specimens from his 
press. 

At the May meeting, held by anticipation on the two 
hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the granting of the Charter, 
a paper prepared by Mr. Clarence W. Bowen was read by his 
nephew, Mr. Gardner Richardson, on "The Charter of 
Connecticut and the Winthrop Family." The reading was 
profusely illustrated by reproductions of documents and 
portraits; and our Librarian prepared a notable exhibition of 
illustrative material. 

FINANCIAL. 

You will hear with great satisfaction the report of the 
Treasurer. Our income from dues and dividends has been 
$1,264, some $40 more than last year, while the ordinary 
expenses, including the cost of insurance, have been $1,710, 
about $140 less than last year. The liberal donation of $500 
from our first Vice-President, James J. Goodwin, LL. D., with 
thoughtful kindness repeated and for which continued thanks 



are due, and gifts from seventy-five other members amount- 
ing in all to $359, have so far exceeded the deficit on the 
general account that we carry over a considerable balance, 
which can be applied for some of the Society's pressing needs. 
These special gifts, made in response to a special appeal issued 
this year for the fourth time, testify to an increasing interest in 
the work of the Society and an increasing readiness to help in 
its maintenance. The amount acknowledged in last year's 
report was $244 — and that was $30 more than in that of the 
preceding year — from thirty-two persons; this year the number 
of contributors has been increased by forty-three and the 
amount of their gifts by $115. The proposal has been made 
more than once that the charge for annual dues should be 
made larger and the necessary expenses of our work should 
thus be fully distributed over our whole membership; but it is 
feared that in doing this we should lose a good many valued 
members, for whom the additional cost would be felt as a 
hindrance to the continuance of their names on the roll. -The 
appeal for special gifts will be certainly and confidently and 
thankfully repeated; and it is hoped that even more than in 
the year just closed will find that they can make their annual 
payment $10 or $5, or at least a dollar more than is indicated 
on the Treasurer's bill, for their own benefit and that of the 
Society and also that our Society may be of increased service 
to the community. 

You will be glad to note the good condition of the Publica- 
tion Fund, and the balance of interest which it has on hand, 
ready for its most important purpose. And the distinct 
statement as to each of the Society's funds, will repay your 
careful attention. 

ANCIENT RECORDS OF HARTFORD. 

In 19 10 we observed in a quiet way the 275th anniversary 
of the settlement of Hartford; and this spring we have noted 
with a special commemoration the 250th anniversary of the 
granting of the Charter of Connecticut, which bears date of 
St. George's day 1662. Renewed attention has thus been 
called to the origins of this commonwealth, and a fresh inspira- 
tion has been given for their careful study. It is to be hoped 
that before long our Corresponding Secretary, than whom no 



13 

one is better fitted for the task, will tell us, as the Latin his- 
torian said, of what was done before the colony was founded 
or to be founded, will recount the story of the migration hither 
and of the early years of life here. For the latter time, which 
is the beginning of Hartford's history, much material is found 
in the Book of Distributions, which contains land records for 
the first half-century and other valuable material. Appreciat- 
ing the importance of these records to all who are interested 
in our earl)' annals, and especially to all who wish to make a 
careful study of them, our first Vice-President, to whom we 
already owe so much, has authorized their transcription, edit- 
ing, and publication on behalf of the Society; and I am glad 
to say that great progress has been made in the work, all under 
the care of our skilful Librarian and much of it carried on by 
his own eye and hand. The publication, I do not need to say, 
will be of permanent and widely appreciated value. One large 
volume will contain the 632 pages of text and an ample index. 

FUTURE WORK. 

Such a report as this may well be closed with a thought of 
the future. The work of historical societies is not only the 
search for antiquities and their preservation as antiquities; it 
is not only the inspiration of present study and the pleasure 
of carrying it on; it is that those who come after us may 
rightly appreciate what has been done and what is doing, and 
entering into the labors of other men may perpetuate them. 
It is a duty to ourselves and to the men of coming genera- 
tions that we do this work of preservation and preparation to 
the best of our power. 

Samuel Hart.

^Librarians Keport 



Mr. President and Me tubers of the Society: 

This report marks the completion of your librarian's twen- 
tieth year of service with the Society. Great changes have 
occurred during these years; perhaps none more remarkable 
than in our roll of members. Going back a little further, to 
the date of my own admission in July, 18S9, about the time of 
the beginning of a revival of interest in the Society and its 
work, there were 115 active members. Now there are 391 
active members; and of the 115 who were members twenty- 
three years ago only 28 now remain on our membership roll — 
death has claimed nearly all of the others. In the last twenty 
years there have been added to our library 28,555 books and 
pamphlets, nearly equally divided between the two classes. 
Besides these there are enough miscellaneous items, the 
majority of them printed matter, to bring the total up to 
30,000. A very small number of these are duplicates. An 
estimate officially made in 1889 credited the Society with 
20,000 bound volumes, and there was probably an equal 
number of pamphlets at that time. So that now the Society's 
library may be estimated to contain nearly if not quite 70,000 
titles. In addition to these are the manuscripts. Their num- 
ber is unknown and it is difficult to make even a reasonably 
close estimate of them. But it is safe to judge that the more 
than 12,000 added during the last twenty years brings their 
total above 50,000. And one manuscript may mean a single 
sheet or a bound volume of several hundred pages. From 550 
in 1S92, our bound volumes of newspapers have increased to 
three times that number. Our family genealogies have 
increased to five times their number nineteen years ago; and 
our local histories to perhaps three times their number twenty 
years ago. And all of these additions during the last twenty 
years have been made with the expenditure of only $6,690.67 
in purchases for the library; the other additions having come 



15 

through gifts and through exchanges, the latter chiefly with 
other societies which receive our publications and send us their 
own in return. 

The number of our readers during the last seventeen years 
reaches the grand total of 62,481, a yearly average of a little 
more than 3,675. 

The new list of the printed family genealogies in our library, 
referred to in the last annual report, was issued at the end of 
last August. It shows nearly 1,800 separate individual family 
histories. Enough cross references appear in the list, where 
more than one family is represented in a volume, to bring the 
total number mentioned in the list up to almost 1,900. Col- 
lections of genealogical material are not included in this list; 
only separate family histories. This new list shows that our 
genealogies have increased five fold in the last nineteen years — 
not a bad showing considering our limited appropriations for 
the purchase of books. Besides the printed genealogies given 
in this list the Society has about two hundred and fifty sep- 
arate manuscript genealogies. Many of these are small, but 
all are of interest and value. 

Besides this List of Family Genealogies, consisting of 42 
pages, the usual Annual Report, of 40 pages, was published 
in June. 

The following family genealogies have been added since our 
last report: Barnes, Barney-Hosmer, Bates, Cady, Cary, 
Casavant and Ravenelle-Laline, Coaldwell, Coe, Cole, Colver, 
Congdon, Durfee, Gardner, Haskins, Jewett, Lamson, Mason, 
Mayer, Monson, Xewton, Patten, Pendleton, Sackett-Wygant- 
Mapes, Sanford, Schoff, Scoville, Slocum, Snow, Spicer, 
Sterling, Tilson, Woolsey and Youngs. 

The following books have been credited as purchased to the 
various funds named. 

To the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund: Vital Records of 
Brockton, Carver, Duxbury, Hopkinton, Kingston, New- 
buryport (vol. 2), Stowe, West Bridgewater and Worthington, 
Mass., Sanford genealogy (2 vols.), Youngs genealogy. 

To the William F. J. Boardman Fund: Gardner genealogy, 
Holyoke diaries, William Bently's diary (3 vols.) 

To the Charles J. Hoadly Fund: Sterling genealogy (2 vols. ), 
Mead's History of Greenwich, Conn., Essex County, Mass., 
court records. 



1G 

To the Goldthwaite Fund: Genealogical and family history 
of Connecticut (4 vols. ), and Genealogical and personal memoirs 
of Middlesex county, Mass. (4 vols.) 

The gifts to the Society during the year comprised 314 
volumes, 319 pamphlets and 35 miscellaneous items. The 
purchases, including twelve volumes credited to the Lucy A. 
Brainard Book Fund, eight to the Goldthwaite Fund, five to 
the William F. J. Boardman Fund, and four to the Charles 
J. Hoadly Fund, are 106 volumes, 95 pamphlets and four 
miscellaneous; making a total accession of 420 volumes, 414 
pamphlets and 39 miscellaneous; and a grand total, exclusive of 
manuscripts, of 871 items. 

The' number of our readers during the year has been 3,110, 
somewhat of a decrease from the number for last year, but an 
almost equal increase over that for two years ago. 

The manuscripts added during the year, with the names of 
their donors, are as follows:

Land Company, against various persons, 1832-1S48. 



The manuscripts received from the Johnson family are 
worthy of a more extended notice than can be given them 
here. They all relate to the case of the Mohegan Indians in 
their suit against the Colony involving a claim to territory in 
the eastern part of Connecticut. This case, which was carried 
to England for trial, was perhaps the most complicated suit 
in which Connecticut was ever involved. These papers, com- 
prising deeds (both originals and copies) signed in some 
instances by the Indians, copies of various records, affidavits, 
letters, maps, and various other documents, all relate to this 
case. And accompanying them is the manuscript (probably 
the printer's "copy") and one of the printed volume of the 
Case issued in London in 1769 as the Colony's "brief." 

The acquisition of the letter of March 30, 1636, from Sir 
Richard Saltonstall to Gov. John Winthrop of Connecticut not 
only brings to the Society a document which is in itself very 
interesting, but puts the Society in possession of what is 
believed to be the oldest manuscript in Connecticut relating 
to Connecticut. 

There have been two important gifts of books during the 
year. The first from Mrs. Anna Morris Perry and Mrs. C. S. 
Mills, daughters of our late member and officer Jonathan Flynt 
Morris, of the remaining copies of the " Morris Register." It 
was voted that the proceeds from the sale of these volumes 
should form a Jonathan Flynt Morris Fund; the income from 
this fund to be used in purchasing books for the Society's 
library. 

The second gift, from James Shepard of New Britain, a 
member of the Society, consisted of a considerable number of 
copies of his History of Saint Mark's Church, New Britain, 
and of his History of the Church in Connecticut. This gift 
was made entirely without restriction as to the expenditure of 
the money received from the sale of the books. 

Within a month after our last annual meeting work was 
begun on another volume of "Collections," the fourteenth of 
the series. From that time, with the exception of a few 
unavoidable delays, work on the volume has been constantly 
in progress. It is to consist of the earliest land records in 
Hartford, what is known as the "Book of Distributions," 
being the record of allotments and transfers of land in Hartford 



for the first half-century after the settlement of the town. And 
in addition to the land records the volume will also contain 
the earliest existing vital records— births, marriages and deaths 
of early inhabitants of Hartford. The task of editing, proof- 
reading and indexing this book has proved to be a long and 
laborious one, and it is yet unfinished; but its completion now 
seems reasonably near. The issuing of this volume is due to 
the generosity of our Vice-President James J. Goodwin. 

Owing to the steady work on this volume it has not been 
possible to accomplish all of the ordinary duties of the library; 
and some of the usual routine work has suffered a temporary 
neglect. This can soon be righted after the present volume 
has been issued.

one of the charters, probably this one, was brought from England.

Our newspaper collection has been increased by the addition 
of nine volumes of the Hartford Telegram, an almost complete 
file, and by volumes of the Calendar, Connecticut Fountain, 
and Episcopal Watchman ^ all published in Hartford. Our 
annual donation of directories from the Hartford Printing 
Company, Elihu Geer's Sons, comprised this year ninety-eight 
volumes. The four volumes of genealogical and family history 
of Connecticut issued by the Lewis Publishing Company, and 
purchased from the Goldthwaite fund, contain much material 
that is of interest. Seven additions have been made to our 
unrivaled collection of eighteenth century Connecticut imprints, 
one each of the years 1770, 1772, 1783, 1787, 1790, 1792, 1798. 

To our Vice-President James J. Goodwin we are indebted 
for five volumes of the Victoria History of the Counties of 
England, Hampshire, vol. 4; Lancaster, vols. 4, 5; Middlesex, 
vol. 2; Surrey, vol. 3; Lincoln Wills, 1 601-1652 (Index 
Library, vol. 41); The Genealogist, vol. 27; Records of South- 
ampton, Long Island (4 vols.); to the Colonial Society of 
Massachusetts, for ten volumes of its most interesting series of 
Transactions; to the American Antiquarian Society, for four 
volumes of Transactions; to the Massachusetts Historical 
Society, for the diary of Cotton Mather (2 vols.) and a volume 
of Transactions; to Franklin B. Dexter, for the fifth volume 
of his Yale Annals and Biographies, 1792- 1805; to James N. 
Arnold, for his Vital record of Rhode Island, volume 20; to 
William Goodrich of Philadelphia for the two handsome 
volumes of Johnson's Swedish settlements on the Delaware; to 
the Minnesota Historical Society for an important volume on 
the Aborigines of Minnesota; to Thomas H. Russell of London 
for a volume on the Russells of Birmingham in the French 
Revolution and in America, 1 791-18 14, giving an interesting 
sketch of life in Connecticut at that period. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.
